Absolute garbage, inferior quality control and build
Ok, I got this for my 92 chevy blazer full size with the 350, no rear a/c. got it fed to my condensor, now the fun part, getting it back to my accumulator, no matter which way I tried, the rubber hose would just kink, i held it next to the stock hose, it was 6 inches too short, thats not even the good part, after getting it threaded onto my condenser it threaded evenly and seemed easily so I thought. i went to take it off, and here the steel nut had messed up my threads on the aluminum fitting on my condenser, now i need a new condenser. Stay away from this product, even the hoses i could squeeze shut with my fingers(felt like heater hose, flimsy). the stock one i cant. i notified autozone and told the manager about it, Autozone should not offer this product from this manufacturer (Everco, Made in China) if you need a hose like this, bite the bullet, go to the dealer, try another manufacturer, get one made, or try the junk yard. stay away from this hose from everco(at least for the blazers and suburbans.). No im not an idiot, ive been a mechanic since 2004 on cars all the way up to diesel rigs, no issues. and no, im not a big shot and dont feel like i am. im a regular blue collar worker that wants to save someone a headache and some money. other than that, autozone is a great company and I have no problems with them, its not their fault. they did however take the part back no issues.
Pros: Looks nice, comes with o-rings and gaskets
Cons: hose soft, kinks, too short, threads made bad
